Professor Cocktail`s Zombie Horde

A book entirely devoted to one of my favorite tiki drinks – the Zombie!!

For the first time ever (as far as i know) has an entire book been written about ONE tiki drink, the famous Zombie. That`s how much this drink fascinates…

Now the book does of course not contain only one Zombie [...]

THE Q.B. COOLER AND THE MAI TAI

This is not a new topic…but If there´s a drink that fascinates me its this one, tthe QB Cooler and the reason is as many of you can guess – it tastes much like a Trader Vic´s Mai Tai – but does only have two ingredients in common, rum and lime and not even [...]

A DUST OF NUTMEG

An interesting fragrant spice and an old favorite tiki drink

The fragrance of nutmeg is very special, i cannot even really describe it – its spicy-woody and fresh, nutty and very satisfying.

Most often i connect nutmeg with either christmas drinks or libations from the caribbean both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Nutmeg and carrot [...]

MIXING THROUGH GROG LOG 4 – Beachcombers Gold

This tiki cocktail was served in a ice mold. In the old days when they didn`t have any ice machines they carved in large ice blocks and some tikidrinks were stylishly served in various ice molds and no wonder it was appreciated by the customers. Imagine sitting in a dark tikibar..and being served an exotic [...]

This time A Mountain of Crushed Ice is on a space trip with the second tiki cocktail from the Grog Log and its dark twist.

Here´s one yummy species of a tiki cocktail, its called Astro Aku Aku and is preferably served in a Moai Mug. (Easter Island Mug) unfortunately i don´t have any..so [...]

TIKI DRINK NOSTALGIA

To me there will always be something very special with Tiki drinks, they are so much more than beautiful to look at and so bloody tasty! – and a pain in the ass to make sometimes, especially if you need to make many but if you just hang on and go through with them [...]

TDN Tiki sure was a blast

There´s a demand for more posts from the TDNs that includes some of the comments and i do agree, its fun reading – especially if you`ve been there for a while and gotten to know the wonderful people who populate the mixoloseum chat room, but a few comments cannot really give a true picture [...]
